OBS granted access rights and sub-projects/ programs

We are attempting to set up a security group for some senior managers. The broad aim of this group is that it should provide wide-ranging rights to view portfolios, programs and projects - but not much in the way of editing rights. Most of the rights granted through this group use a department OBS to allow viewing rights over all nodes at a given level and below.    The particular problem we are having is with projects which are nested in a parent project or a program. It would appear that the permission "Project - View Management" allows our group to see most of what we want them to. However the users dig down to the hierachy of subprojects in a project or program and try to open one of these they get an "Unauthorised access" error message (type 401). This happens even when the sub-project is in a branch of the department OBS which has been made open to the group.  Obviously we can get round this problem by getting the relevant program or project managers to add in our resources (or their group) with manager access. However we would prefer a top-down solution. Is there one?  We are using 8.1sp3. I am listing the detailed rights we have to the affected group below for information:   INSTANCE RIGHTS: None   OBS RIGHTS (Department node X and below where X is the department all the projects and prgrams we are looking at are in):Asset - Hierarchy - Financial Rollup - View
